This website is utilized as a communications and tracking mechanism for a joint Complaint to the U.S. Department of Defense, Office of Inspector General (DODIG) concerning forced transfer issues at the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS). In essence, the complaint alleges fraudulent behavior by NCIS senior management, including accusations of an ongoing, unauthorized reduction-in-workforce effort that coerces employees to leave through the use of forced transfers. Since the initial complaint, dozens of additional agents have joined the original 20 complainants as whistleblowers by telling their stories to DODIG. On April 3, 2013, the DODIG advised the investigation is complete and both subjects were recently notified.
